Teeth don’t always follow the prescribed script when it comes to where and when they erupt. Crooked teeth can be a source of extreme embarrassment to children and young adults. In addition to this, crooked teeth can cause interferences with proper oral hygiene that can lead to gum disease and caries or even interferences in the occlusion that can lead to more serious TMJ problems.
When you first visit your dentist, and depending on the complexity of your case, he/she will decide on whether to treat you in-house or refer you to a specialist.
The approximate length of the treatment tends to be 12 to 30 months. This will vary depending on the individual case.
